Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Cherries Week.

Today's Sour Cherry Dark Chocolate (bar) was made for Cost Plus Inc. by Astor Chocolate Corp. (Lakewood, NJ).

Aroma notes for this bar included: sweet, lightly fruit-spiced, dark chocolate, and very, very faint wood (pulp), menthol, and cherry flavored cold syrup.

The flavor was less complicated than the aroma. The relatively smooth dark chocolate had the taste and mouthfeel of an upbeat, bubbly cherry soda, in chocolate form.

Ingredients: Dark chocolate (chocolate liquor, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla flavor), freeze-dried tart cherries, citric acid, natural cherry flavor.

Allergen-related information: "Contains: soy. May contain milk, wheat, peanuts, and tree nuts.
